My wife and I tried several places for plain cheese NY style pizza and it took a while before we found Circle in the Square. The place is right near Pack square and is priced right. Whenever we are in the mood for a slice or two, we head over to Circle in the Square! The slices are from a... More

I am from Northern NJ, but living here for about a year now. I was missing that famous "NY style" pizza-It really does have an essence. I could not have been happier with the pie we got at Circle in the Square. Perfect crisp crust, hot straight from the oven, sauce was very balanced, and the amount of cheese was... More

Took one hour and a half to get three people a slice of pizza. Pizza had canned mushrooms, bland taste. Tomato sauce tasted like canned sauce. One of our party ordered a garden salad and 45 minutes later received a Caesar salad which was romaine lettuce and a tiny sprinkle of cheese. Had to request dressing. Service was terrible. We...

Enjoyed dinner here with my grandchildren over the weekend. The restaurant was kid friendly and the pizza we had was great, reminded us of the pizza we've enjoyed in New England.. The large was LARGE, big enough to feed our party of 3 adults and two kids. The price was reasonable..we would eat here again while visiting Asheville.

I'm a local- I live in Asheville and I work the front desk at a hotel. Whenever a guest says "What the best pizza in town?" without hesitation I tell them Circle in the Square Downtown I know how important TripAdvisor reviews are to our local businesses, so I wanted to throw this place some love. Circle in the Square... More

Having spent a number of years in New York I know there is nothing like a good NY pizza and Circle in the Square (now Grand Central Deli) is where we go to get it. The pizza is always served right out of the oven, hot and fresh and just as we order. The service is good and the employees... More

Being from New York I love my pizza and this place reminds me of the pizza in the city. I probably eat here at least 2 times per week

We stopped in on the way back to the hotel from a concert at the orange peel and had a couple of slices. Good NY Style pizza and not over priced. The owner was a funny guy who loves to talk to about sports. The staff all seemed to enjoy being there, even at closing time, so I think this... More
